I agree.  Many of those corporations would have a hard time justifying 
an entire /8, even IBM.  They just don't run large public networks any 
longer.  Much of what they do is done on private nets.  I would make all 
of the corporate legacy networks justify their /8's.  I'll almost bet 
none of them can justify them any longer.  I worked for a large medical 
company (30,000 seats) and we didn't use an entire /24.
